2010 saw Southbound Fearing reach new heights in their still very young career with a new e.p. national tours, and a hit nationwide radio single, and 2011 is shaping up to be the year that rock music fans both near and far will be formally introduced to the Toledo, OH based quartet. The band’s fourth release, their debut self-‐titled full-‐length album hits stores August 2nd under IL based indie label Red Cord Records.
The band has pushed themselves both musically and lyrically for the new project, while still sticking to their pop/rock roots. The album also contains the songs “Fighting Words” and “200k Miles” which display a heavier, driving rock sound, while the songs “The Only Word” and “Beautiful” are much softer and more worshipful than anything on the band’s previous releases.
Southbound Fearing has always refused to take the “under the radar” approach in their lyrics and this album is no different. Common themes on the album include God’s grace and salvation as well as the very real struggles that the guys have gone through. “We aren’t perfect..we’re four guys who screw up just as much as everyone else and we want our fans to relate to our songs, we want them to know that God is a god who meets people where they are. Christ gave His life to save the broken.”
The album’s lead radio single, “Irresistible” hits airwaves in early June and with Southbound Fearing’s relentless touring schedule and the label’s newly linked distribution deal with Sony/ Provident, fans everywhere will have a chance to experience the honesty, excitement, and passion that Southbound Fearing brings every time they hit the stage.
